UPDATE 10th June, from News from Nowhere:
Screening of the Women's Peace Crusade film in London. Friday 23 June
This Thursday, 15 June at 7pm the Working Class Movement Library hosts an unusual free event celebrating ‘the creative power of coal’.
This year is the 70th anniversary of the nationalisation of the coal industry. Vesting Day for the National Coal Board was 1 January 1947. Blue and white flags were unfurled outside each pit proclaiming “This colliery is now managed by the National Coal Board on behalf of the people”.
Our event is centred around a book, The flame still burns: the creative power of coal, which explores the sheer power of an industry which created rich, diverse cultures in the different mining communities, and continues to inspire fresh creative work today.
Granville Williams, the book's editor, will introduce a selection of films produced by the versatile and creative NCB Film Unit between 1947 and 1984. The NCB sought to 'win hearts and minds' through a monthly 10-minute newsreel/cine-magazine, Mining Review, and a high quality monthly magazine, Coal. The aim of such publicity was to boost recruitment, bind the distinct cultures and histories of the different coalfields together and promote a positive, modern public image of coalmining.
Come and find out more on 15 June… Admission free; all welcome.

They say: 'We will never know the true number of casualties, as all injured persons would have had to pay for any treatment received. Many would just go to the local “wise-woman” or midwife for treatment. Many hid in pubs etc to avoid being arrested. We want their stories to create a lasting memorial to them'.
A web page at www.peterloo.mlfhs.org.uk gives further details, and the project can be contacted via email at email@example.com or by phone on 0161 652 9765 (answerphone, please leave a message).
If you want to be involved in the project or have information to share, Rod Melton will be attending Manchester Central Library each Tuesday between 10:30 and 15:00. Please go to the Manchester and Lancashire Family History Help Desk and ask for Rod.
